DataFest21 got off to a fantastic start with the #OurFuture week of events, featuring keynote talks from Priya Lakhani, Albert King, Ellen Friedman, Matthew Higgs, and Robin Winsor. You can watch Robin’s fascinating talk “Living Alongside AI: A New World Order” below. We’ll be announcing the details of September’s #OurPeople events soon – watch this space!
Let’s look back at how DataFest has showcased Scotland’s leading role in data science and artificial intelligence on the international stage, while offering an unparalleled networking platform for local and international talent, industry, academia and data enthusiasts.
DataFest19 consisted of over 60 events running across Scotland. As well as several high profile events, our Fringe Events were run all over Scotland by the data science community.
We’re working hard to bring you some of our key events for DataFest21, which will be adapted to the current situation.
A two-day international conference presenting compelling stories on data innovation with keynotes, panels, pitches and lots of inspiration.
A forum to discuss deep technical elements of data science, bringing together technical communities, practitioners and academics across different sectors to share knowledge and experiences and forge new collaborations.
We have previously brought you events around Scotland exploring, hacking and debating data innovation. Events included meetups, hackathons, debates, public engagement. We hope to see these returning in the future.
Our wide range of events offer fantastic opportunities for learning about data science from the key players in the field, as well as networking with other members of the data and AI community.
